I have a 2000 Taurus SE. Radio was not working so I checked the panel under the hood. All fuses looked fine. I had read online that #25 was the radio fuse. When I checked it looked like a relay not a fuse. I made sure the car was off and took it out a shook it around. I went back in the car and the time came on the radio and the tape seemed to work. Once I turned off the car it went off again. Next day I made sure the car was off and took out the #25 Relay (i thinks it's a relay) and shook it up and tapped it agaist the car. Radio has worked ever since. Was that the problem???? not sure but it seems to work.

2003 Ford Taurus air condition switching to defrost at high rpm; speedometer, tachmeter, odometer quit.

Hi Bret, Most modern vehicles have an engine main relay. The relay in question turns off all auxiliary circuits for the starting operation, (when you turn the key to the start position) which consumes more power than any other operation. I would suspect a problem with the wiring to that relay. A loose or bad connection at the base or to the base. The relay in question will usually be a five pin normally open normally closed relay. It should be identified by the directory printed onto the plastic cover of the relay / fuse cover. Also check the secondary connections to the battery. Regards John

Have a '95 Ford Taurus 3.0 Vehicle just shut off and would only make a single 'click' sound. Changed starter and charged battery,still makes single 'click' sound . Any advice.


It seems that you have a bad starter relay, check fuses and related wiring for broken or loose connections, specially ground.

Also, there is a big flat fuse kind of hidden in the right side of the fuse box, motor compartment, one end is connected to the thick cable that comes from the alternator and the other end feeds the fuse box. It has a plastic tab covering it, with the word FUSE written on it. I had a problem with it once, it was blown, but somehow, it worked unless I hit a bump or turn headlights on. As soon as I replaced it my troubles were gone.

Good luck!!!

Taurus 2001 radio location and antenna connecion

the radio that you see in the dash is your only radio!!! behind the radio is a antenna plugged into your radio(or not) if not then its going to be the biggest (most likely) black wire and you can probably figure out where it goes. theres only one spot for it to go!

Stereo stopped working along with speedometer

It's probably not a fuse. It sounds like your vehicle speed sensor went bad in the transmission. The reason your radio stopped working was because your radio is probably equipped with speed sensitive volume and it requires a speed signal to work.
